Luka Prinčič: Interface Fractures II - Metal
Video capture from a media art performance, 2015, 4:07 min
“Interface Fractures II: METAL” is an audio-visual composition performed live with rapid moving images synchronized with rhythmical intertwinement of noise, low frequencies and digital clicks. Rhythmical pulsation of low and high frequencies merges with visual movements. ‘Metal’ originates in understanding of contemporary world as a mutual interlacement of digital and analogue, discrete and continuous, human and machine-like (non-human), in a movement of the mind without exclusion and polarisation of the pairs. In this context the resistance and firmity of information is questioned: information nowadays is mostly digitalisation of analogue phenomena but also has its methods of self-preservation and mortality. Can disintegration or decay in the digital domain be a metaphor for death and sadness in similar sense as in the analogue? If in the moment of high possibility of errors the data simply copies itself and moves away, where are then the emotional states, life, breathing and affectedness of modern living stored? In fractures, illuminated by light projector; in fragments of graphic images, where computer code is inscripted between frames and music that starts up video images to flow. From Emanat web page.
